## Fractions

A Fraction (such as 3/8) has two numbers:
 Numerator Denominator

We call the top number the Numerator, it is the number of parts you have.
We call the bottom number the Denominator, it is the number of parts the whole is divided into.

## Fractions can have three different types :

Proper Fractions: The numerator is less than the denominator Examples: 1/3, 3/4, 2/7 The numerator is greater than (or equal to) the denominator Examples: 4/3, 11/4, 7/7 A whole number and proper fraction together Examples: 1 1/3, 2 1/4, 16 2/5

## Proper Fractions

So, a proper fraction is just a fraction where the numerator (the top number) is less than the denominator (the bottom number). Here are some examples of proper fractions:   1/2 1/4 3/8 (One-Half) (One-Quarter) (Three-Eighths)
